The fortified complex, called “Castel Belasi”, is located in the municipality of Campodenno, in the Val di Non in the Trentino-Alto Adige Region. The building was built in the 14th century and has been partially restored in recent years. Due to its location, it’s ideal to be developed into an exhibition centre or/and tourist accommodation.
The Castle is situated outside the city centre, near the village of Segonzone, in the middle of countryside in upper Val di Non where apples are cultivated. The original nucleus of the castle, represented by the tall pentagonal keep of the central building, dates back to the 14th century. The complex has two fortified entrances, protected by walls, which open into a wide safeguarded area where the keep and other buildings can be found. The residential estates will be used as public exhibition, cultural and representative centres, while the farm buildings will act as the reception area. The main building has six floors above ground as well as a basement. The castle has been owned by the municipality of Campodenno since the year 2000 and has undergone three important restoration projects to reinforce, restore and adjust it, and work will soon begin on the residential buildings. At the moment, the complex is open to the public and is used for events and exhibitions.
The property in located in the municipality of Campodenno (pop. 1,500), in the province of Trento, a small town in lower Val di Non where most of the castles and aristocratic residences of the Trentino-Alto Adige region can be found. The castle is 3 km from the city centre, in the village of Segonzone, in a scenic and hilly area, easily accessible by the SP55 and the SS43. Italian and foreign tourists frequently visit Val di Non, both in summer and in winter, as it offers different sport activities (skiing, snowboarding, golf, canoeing, etc.), nature trails, hikes, etc. Trento is 30 km away and Bolzano is 55 km. The Mezzocorona railway station FS, where regional trains pass through Trento, Bolzano, Verona and Bologna, is 13 km from the property, and so is the “San Michele all’Adige” tollbooth on Brenner motorway (A22).
